“Deck the Halls” Welsh lyrics

O mor gynnes mynwes meinwen,
fal lal lal lal lal lal lal lal la:
O mor fwyn yw llwya meillionen,
fal lal lal lal lal lal lal lal la:
O mor felus yw’r cusanau,
[instrumental flourish]
Gyda serch a mwynion eiriau
fal lal lal lal lal lal lal lal la:

“Deck the Halls” lyrics (English)

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
‘Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Don we now our gay apparel,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Toll the ancient Yuletide carol,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

See the blazing Yule before us,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus.
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Follow me in merry measure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
While I tell of Christmas treasure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Sing we joyous, all together,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la la

“Deck the halls” Teaching ideas

As the tune refers to a dance, we can follow the form AABA΄ and come up with a simple choreography. It could be a dance on a circle, like this:

A-   4 steps to the right, stop and [(3 claps – rest ) x 2] at “Fa la la…”

B-   We hold hands and the human circle closes towards the centre. When the voice pitch goes high, we raise our hands, when it goes down, so do the hands.

    1. Hi Barbara! We had missed your comment here, sorry. If it’s not for commercial reasons, you sure can. However, monetized YouTube videos are a different story, so write to info@singing-bell.com if you need a commercial license for that.
